i The story of the- organization, and foririative years'of the 
I Communist Party in this country, which is now virtually 
; suppressed- in the. most; widely circulated American reference 
j volumes, is Md by Mr. Hoover in natural, sequence; He

Mr. Hoover does- not divulge much that "is. new about 
specific spy cases sueh.as the treason, of Puchs; the Rosen-

prehensively than anyone else has'.in a/book is' the- vast net- 
work of C6mmunist-organized' and Communist-rinfiltrated or- 
ganizations existing in- this country;. / -^' 

He shows, how £w<?- or thr^e trained* ^determined, patient 
concealed Members, of the Communist- Party can &et into a 
heretofore respectable organization having- loyal purposes, 
and- transform it. into 4 transmission belt" for Communist 
propaganda, and Communist aggressive action

MORRIS L ERNST: "I Welcome this book 
because many intellectuals may snipe that this 
frank; statement by the director of the iBI 
should not come from; the active head of ait 
executive branch of our Government r *. .It may 
give, pause to those intellectuals who are inclined 
to indict the FBI in generic terms because of iso-
